I used an amazing photographer who had just started doing newborns, she charges through the roof now but her images were amazing & I got them all for free for help building her folio. I actually found her on here 4.5 years ago. Might be worth seeing if there's someone around like that? I am still so happy with my images.
Holy moly! I am in a different state. I paid $650 total ($100 booking fee) & $550 for 20 images. I'm getting the 20 images in high res so I can print the ones to go on the wall etc & she keeps all images so if you ever want more you can purchase later...she also had the option of a 6 week payment plan so you could pay it off (interest & fee free).
Personally I regretted getting professional family photos when dd1 was a newborn- the reason being she still was all wrinkly and funny looking- she looks nothing like the dd1 I know and love, all the facial features have changed and I was still bloated from pregnancy.
If I were to do it again I would wait until around the 4-6 month mark, they are just so cute at that age, can focus and smile and actually look more like themselves iykwim?
But that's just me and my opinion.

need to talk to dh as its hinging on him really. id be happy to do it but he's very picky with this kind of thing. honestly I reckon ds will be about 12 by the time I can get dh on board and agreed on a photographer 😂
we paid about $3k for our wedding photographer and dh had to convince her to give us all the raw files as part of the deal, which she finally agreed to. sadly she wasn't very good and I'm not thrilled with what we got. even the better ones are just ok in my opinion. maybe I was expecting the earth or maybe I just didn't look that nice on the day (entirely possible lol) but the images were just a good average. this was all overseas so it wasn't possible to meet with her beforehand. we had zero rapport and I found she put me off a lot. choosing photographers is hard.
We did newborn photos and I love them, there is something so adorable about a little baby in a cute hat in a basket to me haha. We paid about $900 including all photos in a gallery for us to print on our own with recommendations on which printer go to through.
We used inspired images by Sarah
She is based in ivanhoe but will come out to your home/location of its suits you (different cost involved)
She was $750 for 20-30 edited images on usb and a couple of printed.
Can check out her stuff on Facebook.
She was great. She did a family photo shoot for some friends of mine too.
Baby buddha photography and the garage studios are both in the west and I love their style - not as expensive as KC
